Beautiful, Beautiful Boy

– Posted in: Beautiful, Childhood, Mommyhood

On this day, eight years ago, the world changed. My precious Sonny-Bunny was born. We decorated his nursery with the John Lennon collection of animals. His mobile played this beautiful song so today I will share it on his behalf. Happy birthday, little man, you have made me a better woman.

Close your eyes,
Have no fear,
The monsters gone,
He’s on the run and your daddy’s here,

Beautiful,
Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

Before you go to sleep,
Say a little prayer,
Every day in every way,
It’s getting better and better,

Beautiful,
Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

Out on the ocean sailing away,
I can hardly wait,
To see you to come of age,
But I guess we’ll both,
Just have to be patient,
Yes it’s a long way to go,
But in the meantime,

Before you cross the street,
Take my hand,
Life is just what happens to you,
While your busy making other plans,

Beautiful,
Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,
Darling,
Darling,
Darling Sean.

My daughter (who turned eight in August) also had the John Lennon collection of animals decorating her nursery. And I sang to her Good Night from the Beatles (just as my father sang it to me).

Happy happy birthday to your beautiful son. (and happy day to you too, mama!)

Tracie,

Our lives seem to have a lot of parallels beyond our name. Thanks for the birthday love!

Happy Birthday!!! I am going to go look up this song…I don’t know this one!

Traci October 24, 2011, 9:02 am

It’s a great one — you should definitely listen to it. But warning, it may make you cry!
